Diverse eBooks for Early Readers

Written by Emily Rozmus on Tuesday, 13 December 2016. Posted in Posts

It's a snowy day today in much of Ohio, and many teachers and parents will automatically think of a childhood favorite, The Snowy Day by  Ezra Jack Keats. This award-winning book tells the story of Peter and the adventures he has on a snowy day. Readers young and old can imagine the red snow-suited figure of a young boy playing in the wintry city. Many will also remember that Peter is an African-American child, and recognize that childhood delights are not determined by race, location, or gender. Everyone has fun in the snow.
